In scope

IMPORTANT: Please only perform service degradation attacks or horizontal privilege attacks on the Sandbox URL's

We've done our best to clean most of our known issues and now would like to request your help to spot the ones we missed! We are specifically looking for;

  • Leaking of large quantities of personal data, if you can find a way to expose bulk quantities of data, we want to know about it.
  • Horizontal privilege escalation i.e breaking into someone elses wallet. This should only be attempted in the Sandbox environment.
  • Specifically related to our trading business, we want to know if you're able to "create money", duplicate transactions or receive more funds into your wallet than are transferred. Any kind of issue which would negatively affect the balance sheet.

General

  • In case that a reported vulnerability was already known to the company from their own tests, it will be flagged as a duplicate.
  • Theoretical security issues with no realistic exploit scenario(s) or attack surfaces, or issues that would require complex end user interactions to be exploited, may be excluded or be lowered in severity

  • DoS/DDoS attacks or brute force attacks.
  • Vulnerabilities that are limited to non-current browsers (older than 3 versions) will not be accepted
  • Attacks requiring physical access to a victim’s computer/device, man in the middle or compromised user accounts
  • Recently disclosed zero-day vulnerabilities in commercial products where no patch or a recent patch (< 2 weeks) is available. We need time to patch our systems just like everyone else - please give us 2 weeks before reporting these types of issues.
  • Reports that state that software is out of date/vulnerable without a proof-of-concept

Rules of engagement

Our promise to you

  • We are happy to respond to any questions, please use the button in the right top corner for this.
  • We respect the safe harbour clause that you can find below

Your promise to us

  • Provide detailed but to-the point reproduction steps
  • Include a clear attack scenario. How will this affect us exactly?
  • Remember: quality over quantity!
  • Please do not discuss or post vulnerabilities without our consent (including PoC's on YouTube and Vimeo)
  • Please do not use automatic scanners -be creative and do it yourself! We cannot accept any submissions found by using automatic scanners. Scanners also won't improve your skills, and can cause a high server load (we'd like to put our time in thanking researchers rather than blocking their IP's 😉)
